Road closed along SH29 for rail upgrades
The Hinuera Railway Crossing is set to be re-opened this evening at 5pm.
The road was first closed at 6am on Saturday, June 8 for works to be done on the railway crossing.
In a statement, The New Zealand Transport Agency says the upgrades to the crossing includes the full removal of both lines that intersect SH29.
“All traffic will be detoured via Hopkins Road/Hinuera Road/SH27 expect for HPMVs which will use SH1/SH27 if travelling east or SH28/SH5/SH1 if travelling west.”
The road is expected to re-open at 5pm today.
